Course Objectives: This course in the field of organic chemistry gives the students basic information about the structure of organic compounds, their preparation, their physical and chemical properties. This course introduces basic organic functional groups and the basic reactions involved in these groups, together with their mechanisms. This course also provides an understanding of the concept and scope of organic chemistry and teach the rules related to the naming of cyclic, acyclic and bicyclic hydrocarbons, alkyl halides, alcohols, simple amines, amides, carboxylic acids, aldehydes and ketones with aliphatic saturated and unsaturated structures.
